This week on L.A. Theatre Works, a 2010 performance of Doctor Cerberus by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is on tap and sure to make you laugh. Starring the awesome Simon Helberg (of TV’s “The Big Bang Theory”), Steven Culp and Pamela Gray, the play has been described as “a coming-of-age, coming-out cocktail with a twist of terror” but also “has true heart”.
About the play:
Thirteen-year-old Franklin Robertson is trying to survive adolescence. His parents don t understand him, his brother torments him, he has no friends, and he s more interested in the high school quarterback than any girl. The one bright spot in his life is the glow of the black-and-white TV in his parents basement. Here, he worships at the altar of the Saturday Night Horror Movie, hosted by the eerie Dr. Cerberus. Before long, Franklin is convinced that only by going on the show will his life be redeemed – by Dr. Cerberus himself!
